Game time

Cold and rain didn't stop a game of soccer when the Long Lake and Johnsburg central schools' elementary soccer teams recently went head-to-head in a fun-filled game. Johnsburg prevailed 6-1, but in elementary sports the emphasis is on learning the game, learning sportsmanship, and having fun.

Hot Screamers softball team finishes off 2014 with a bang

INLET -- Matt's Drafthouse Hot Screamers softball team finished off the 2014 season with a bang.
They came out of the gate on fire in the championship game against The Inn On Gore, putting up 10 runs in the top of the first. Every batter hit the ball hard, and the inning was only ended because of the 10-run rule.
Kyle Houser and DeDe Ste-Marie both singled and then scored when Beth Williamson crushed a three homer. Heather Levi drew a walk, Meg Kraeger singled, Ashley Fowler smacked a double fol ...

Hot Screamers win again

Hunting season all over but the counting
By Dick Nelson

Another New York state big game hunting season has gone by the boards and, going by several early reports, it appears the kill will be substantially lower than the 208,325 taken in 2013. Even with the high number of deer management permits that were available, the number of does taken by hunters will -- in all probability -- also be lower than last year.
Due to my wife's health problems I didn't get into the deer woods at all this year, signing my DMP over to my son Richie, who also had one of h ...

ABOUT THE WEEK OF DEC. 17, 1965, called noels in France, le pastorali in Italy and Weihnachtslieder in Germany, carols are the welcome sound of Christmas everywhere. But did you know that originally carols were not songs but dances? It's a fact.
These "round" dances were part of early Christian worship, and one of the first "carolers" was St. Francis of Assisi, back in the 12th century. The first carol was probably sung as an accompaniment to early nativity plays; one of the earliest of the chor ...

Deer hunters hit the end of the trail
By Dick Nelson

New York's regular big game hunting seasons are coming down to the wire. The gunning season ended Sunday and, unless you shoot something during the late bow and muzzleloader seasons, you'll have to go through a whole year of greasy pork chops, plain old beefsteaks, or other store-bought vittles.
Both the late bow and muzzleloading seasons end in the Northern Zone Dec. 14 and in the Southern Tier Dec. 16.
At any rate, it would be far better to nourish yourself with a healthy fat-free venison stea ...

ABOUT THE WEEK OF DEC. 10, 1965, the military survivors of the attack on Pearl Harbor of Dec. 7, 1941 were trying to perform a miracle by locating as many survivors as possible in order to band together and form chapters in cities and states across the country as the "Pearl Harbor Survivors Association."
The society had located 10,000 service men and women who were there, and believed there were some 40,000 more. The goal was to return "en masse" to Honolulu for the 25th anniversary and memorial ...
